Henderson doubt for Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is a doubt to face his former club Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The midfielder was forced off midway through the second half of Saturday's win over Manchester City with a heel problem, although it is not the same issue which has troubled the England international for the last 12 months.

Options for manager Jurgen Klopp include returning Adam Lallana to a deeper role and restoring Divock Origi to the starting line-up, or bringing in Lucas Leiva as the deep-lying midfielder.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Origi, Firmino, Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Moreno, Lucas, Stewart, Ejaria, Sturridge, Woodburn, Ojo.

'We tried everything' to win, insists Liverpool boss Klopp

Jurgen Klopp refused to lay the blame for West Ham's first goal squarely at Loris Karius' feet after the keeper had got a hand to Payet's effort but failed to keep it out.

Having initially taken the lead early on, Liverpool went in at half-time a goal down to West Ham at Anfield on Sunday before Divock Origi's second-half equaliser meant a point apiece in the eventual 2-2 draw.

And the German manager felt bad luck had prevented his side from winning rather than any lack of endeavour.

We tried everything. The (West Ham) goals - one is a wonderful free-kick and one we were very unlucky - they were a big surprise for everybody.

We should have had more, we tried everything.

It's a draw, we have to take it; it felt like we were the whole time in their box.

We haven't made the right decisions, you need a little bit of luck. A draw doesn't feel too good but it doesn't feel too bad either.

We are still a really good football-playing side.

– Jurgen Klopp
